6:45 pm
58 redwood city. 58 san francisco. sunrise at 6:47. so what is going on? why are we going to get warmer? it can be answered in one letter, the letter is h. h is for the center of high pressure which is sitting off to our west. we put that on the map where the ridge is. it's a big strong ridge of high pressure. it will extend its influence up and down the west coast and since it's parked just off to our west, that's giving us a minimal if any onshore flow. are we getting the flow from the ocean or not? monday we were. it was chilly cloudy. today not so much. tomorrow zero. we are not going to see much ocean influence. notice that ridge didn't move for the necessary -- for the next several days it won't be moving. we'll be above average, sunnier than normal. no records. but warm. inland 90s for five straight days. i know we do it every september. the air-condition cranking the next few days. it's going to be warm near the water as well especially thursday, friday and saturday. so back to the 90s for you in
6:46 pm
concord. 91. only five degrees above average but 20 degrees warmer than yesterday. milpitas 80. palo alto 78. half moon bay milder 68. pittsburg will hit 93. 70 san francisco tomorrow. oakland 76. richmond 74. sonoma 86. i do hear a 96? yeah. head up toward lakeport 96 degrees coming up tomorrow. extended forecast, the hottest day thursday, friday, saturday, just a few degrees shy of 100 away from the water. some of you will hit 80 near the bay for a couple of days and thank goodness the 49ers are playing an evening game hot in santa clara sunday highs around 90 inland all the way through the end of the weekend. that is your kpix 5 forecast. >> thank you. speaking of hot, some farmers in the central valley are under fire for how they are trying to weather the drought. reporter lee martinez on the concern over where they may be getting their water. >> the nuts have already been removed. that's the first to har vet.
6:47 pm
>> reporter: california's drought has pushed almond harvest three weeks ahead of schedule. >> in all the years that i farmed almonds this is the earliest we have ever been at this stage. >> reporter: this grower says almond growers have been preparing for a big drought for the last 30 years. >> i think we have done the best that we could do with the limited amount of water and a lot of almond growers used half the normal allotment of the water hand had to figure -- and had to figure out how to make that do this year. >> reporter: how nut growers are making do has conservationists concerned. many are concerned they are digging deep wells into the aquifer and taking water without regulation. in july we spoke to a university of the pacific geologist who warns, california is sinking and we should stop tapping the aquifer. >> ground water pumping and storage were the two tools that almond growers and most of the al culture industry used this year to get us through the drought. so we are going to be just as dependent or maybe even more next year on ground water for our supply.
6:48 pm
>> reporter: san joaquin's farm bureau says the county is one of the few regularly testing ground water supplies and says it fares better than others but many worry if governor brown signs three bills libertying ground water next year -- limiting ground water next year, people living there will pay more in fees and taxes for water monitoring already being done by the county. he says the only thing he can do is hope for the best. >> we are really very hopeful that we are going to have exceedingly large rain and snowfall in california this year. >> let's hope so. >> that's what everybody is hoping. >> lee martinez reporting. we'll be right back. ,,,,

felonly domestic abuse arre from 49ers ceo jed york and you guys saw earlier how ray mcdonald, the san francisco supervisors are not -- >> yeah. >> so york finally spoke for the first time. jim harbaugh has been fronting it up to this point but york attempted to distance ray mcdonald's felony domestic abuse arrest from the ray rice assault saying, quote, ray mcdonald is not ray rice. as for allowing mcdonald to continue to play football while under investigation, york said he won't punish mcdonald until he sees evidence. >> as a leader you need to make
6:52 pm
sure you're doing what you feel is the right thing. and it's not always what's the most popular thing. again, i will fall back on if you want to take shots at my reputation and you want to characterize me in this way for taking this stance, i'm comfortable with that. and i realize there might be people that dissent. i fully acknowledge that and i fully respect that decision. but for me to look at myself in the mirror and say, i'm going to punish somebody whether it's not playing them or cutting them or us is spending them or whatever -- suspending them or whatever that punishment is before you can go through an entire, you know, legal process and entire investigation, that's just not who i am. >> many disagree with york's stance including former 49ers quarterback steve young who said this on espn. >> any big company in this country, if that happens, they
6:53 pm
don't -- they send you home. they might pay you. but you don't play, you don't come to work until we figure this out. >> so you believe jim harbaugh -- >> we just -- >> -- takes a stance and the hopes take a stance. >> you can see how this began -- the hopes take a stance? >> you can see how this -- you have to have no tolerance about it and mean it. we have to have a policy that if you get arrested for this, until we figure out, we'll call you when you figure it out. >> former raiders ceo amy trask the one-time highest ranking female executive in the nfl appeared on the cbs morning show and was not buying roger goodell's story that the nfl had not seen the elevator video prior to yesterday. >> as to why they didn't see the video sooner, i -- i don't know that any of us know the answers relating to the video issue. and quite frankly, i'm not sure
6:54 pm
what i would find more stunning, that the league did not see the video, which would be stunning, or that the league saw the video and yet imposed only a two-game penalty, which would be stunning. i don't know which is more perplexing. >> now, none of this is proving a distraction to the 49ers on the field. they steam rolled the cowboys on sunday and after keeping everything close to the vest in the preseason, the 49ers unleashed colin kaepernick and the passing game against the cowboys. kaepernick was so impressive that he prompted a rare comparison out of jim harbaugh. >> there's been a lot of talk, a lot of rhetoric and opinions. some people like you, some don't. but you know, only colin kaepernick [ indiscernible ] my information is only two people that could make that -- those two plays, one is colin
6:55 pm
kaepernick, the other has an s on his chest. usa basketball played slovenia in the world cup. cousins was asked if he knew where slovenia was. no. do you know where alabama is? because hopefully not given steph curry a geography lesson, the other half of the splash brothers klay thompson shows he can play above the rim. thompson leads usa with 20 points. they blow out slovenia 119-76. they will face lithuania in the semifinals. the dodgers hope that they can hold off the san francisco giants. anyway. uhm -- they got a big series coming up. >> yeah. no question about that. the mcdonald case, a little bit different in that there is no videotape. >> yeah. >> so there is no real physical evidence that people can weigh in on. >> but domestic violence is
6:56 pm
domestic violence. i see both sides of this thing. what's really scary is how prevalent this might be in the nfl. >> yeah. >> what's going on? >> all last week the 49ers were talking about due process. the problem is that the thoroughness of the investigation of the ray rice problem now affects the mcdonald case in a way that people are going to say you messed up the rice investigation. how can we trust any further investigations that you do? >> i can see that. >> that's the issue. i think that's what steve young was referring to. >> okay. >> i like his tie. i just wanted to mention. >> thank you. >> on a lighter note. >> for news throughout the evening and the best in tiewear, the latest on kpix.com.
